Flea markets in Frankfort take place on a weekly basis, except during holidays. The exact location of the flea markets changes every week between the Flohmarkt am Schaumainkai and the Flohmarkt an der Lindleystraße (Eastern Harbour flea market).
Both the Flohmarkt am Schaumainkai and Flohmarkt an der Lindleystraße are located quite close to the city center and can be reached by foot, bike, public transport or by car, therefore making these flea markets not only popular among frankfurters, but also among tourists and people from the surrounding area. Also, the proximity to the river and the presence of many cafes, bistros and small restaurants nearby, offer a nice way to round off the visit.
The Flohmarkt am Osthafen (East Harbour flea market) shows up its authentic charm from a completely different angle: The Lindleystraße runs parallel to the Schwedlersee, and offers too a beautiful view of downtown Frankfurt. Besides its charm, the East Harbour flea market is also quite the place to purchase typical flea market items, such as old books and records as well as porcelain & crockery, paintings and vintage clothing.
Private flea market stalls can be found next to professional traders who showcase high-quality antique furniture and decorative items. Some stalls also sell new home appliances, utensils and CDs. The result is a varied mix of merchants who have a little bit of everything to offer to everyone.
